ACEC/MA Announces Woodard & Curran as Bronze Winner in Engineering Excellence

QUINCY, MA — The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) names Woodard & Curran as a winner of their 2020 Bronze Engineering Excellence Award for their work on the Town Brook relocation in Quincy, Massachusetts.

The 2020 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the 2021 ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement.

The Town Brook relocation unlocks the potential redevelopment of 14 acres of underutilized land in downtown Quincy. It includes new green infrastructure that improves water quality and helps restore spawning habitat for native fish species.

To accomplish it, Quincy established a unique public-private partnership that allowed significant infrastructure upgrades to be completed by a private developer. The city’s program manager, Woodard & Curran, then collaborated closely with the developer to design and construct the infrastructure on the same site as the construction of a over 150-unit apartment building. Ultimately, the project advances Quincy’s downtown revitalization efforts and economic development.

Woodard & Curran handled a wide range of water and environmental issues — solving complex problems with creativity and tenacity. They are an integrated engineering, science, and operations company. Privately held and steadily growing, they serve public and private clients locally and nationwide.

We congratulate them and thank them for their contributions to improving the quality of our everyday lives.”
